Kings players take part in Movember, Mike Richards to contribute
Los Angeles Kings players Jonathan Bernier, Kyle Clifford, Drew Doughty, Trevor Lewis, Alec Martinez, Willie Mitchell, Dustin Penner, Mike Richards and Kevin Westgarth are all growing mustaches as they officially participate in the Movember campaign in an effort to raise awareness and funds for men’s health and prostate cancer in particular.

Richards, who is in his first season with the Kings, will be donating $1 for every new Twitter followe -- @MRichie_10…he currently features 52,548 followers -- during the Movember campaign (maximum of $10,000), while fans can also visit LAKings.com/movember to support their favorite player’s mustache.

In addition, Exemplis Corp. whose brands include SitOnIt Seating and IDEON – Official Sponsor and Seating Manufacturer of the Kings has agreed to match Richards’ contribution (minimum donation of $5,000 and maximum donation of $10,000).

Also the Kings beginning this Saturday will be selling special, fun mustaches at the Team LA store at STAPLES Center with a portion of proceeds being donated to the cause, and any Kings fans who comes to this Sunday’s Tip-A-King and shows their Movember mustache can be entered into a drawing to win tickets for the Kings-San Jose Sharks game at STAPLES Center on November 28 which will serve as the club’s “Movember Night.”
